Being British, this episode was highly anticipated and it has been pretty hyped over here. I really hoped that it would not be yet another wacky vacation episode, something we have seen all too often recently. And I'm glad to say to wasn't... to an extent.
To start, a good opening. Although the first act didn't really have anything to do with the main story, I liked how they kept the "doing something nice for Marge" theme running throughout. So then, we move on to the trip to England...
I felt that the whole story was well written - there were plenty of (good) stereotype jokes, as well as a couple of good parodies (such as Trainspotting - when Bart & Lisa eat too much English candy). However, there were several things I disliked. The first and most annoying was the over-reliance on guest stars. Tony Blair and J.K. Rowling were both totally unnecessary and added nothing to the plot. The appearance of Ian McKellen was pretty funny, but again it was just another guest added to boost ratings. Another thing I disliked was the two Lords kissing, again it was unnecessary and unfunny - I hope that's not a real British stereotype.
Well, the episode progressed well, and was looking pretty good... until the ending. Homer has a half-sister? I thought this was really stupid and tacked-on, and it kinda ruined the episode a bit.
This was a truly great episode it had me laughing hysterically. I love it 5/5
THE REGINA MONOLOGUES
THE SIMPSONS...TONY BLAIR...THIS IS IT!
A classic episode and it'll stick in my mind forever! The simpsons go to England, Woo Hoo!
They eat all the sweets in Harrods, hit into the queen in a mini cooper S and meet tony blair and J.K.Rowling.
James Bond Has never done better...
the best simpsons epesode ever it was so good i cant even explain how good it is 1,000,000/5
I really enjoyed this episode but expected to see a little more tony blair than about 30 seconds of him! I also thought the story would be based on tony blair more, as when i saw the Promotional image of tony blair standing and homer pooring his cup of tea away it made me think that it would have the simpsons staying in 10 downing street.
I very much liked the judi dench's fish and chips part aswell! Welcome to judi dench's fish and chips, now completely free of mad fish disease!
